Subject Re: couchdb attachments vs storing files on fs or s3 like service
Date Mon, 27 Apr 2009 13:23:44 GMT
Attachments don't affect general performance except during compaction,  
where the bytes must be copied to a new file. Eventually we'll have a  
binary object plugin, to allow binary objects to be written to  
alternate storage.
